What I want for Valentine’s Day 

What I want for Valentine’s Day

To the lovers who celebrate it, I am sure you’re all fired up and ready to get on with the celebrations, to the singles out there who do not give an F and will be humming it with either good friends or a good book and nice accompaniment I say kuddos to you and to the mummy who had no idea what today is or when V-Day is or even bother to attempt doing something for it I say – wine anyone?

Valentine’s Day is so over commercialised that it is kinda hard to actually see the ‘romance‘ that it is meant to be about. I am not against going to a restaurant and having a meal with my dude because it is something we would have done anyway given we could find the time. I am not against presents because my dude has this thing about making sure all my gifts are personalised and you know what I love it. Every Christmas card he’s given me in the last 8 years has had a poem in it (how sweet it that?). There are so many things that you can do on Valentine’s Day that doesn’t require the materialistic things but if you had to have them many jewellery stores have the best deals around this time.

I have decided for this year, what I want for Valentine’s Day is YOU (ok not you you but boo you 😂😂😂 or not boo you as in booing you but my man lol) and

  • Cuddling – if there is one man I know who loves to cuddle as much as me is my boo. We can spend many hours in front of the telly watching documentaries or Ace Ventura just cuddling and laughing like tomorrow don’t matter
  • Cheesey lines – I am a sucker for sweet nothings. Boo is very good at whispering sweet nothings to me and then he will crack a joke that is totally unrelated (lol) but I love that about him, 8 years on and I am still laughing at he’s (silly) jokes
  • Breakfast in bed – yes ladies I am making you jealous, it doesn’t have to be Christmas, Valentine’s Day, my birthday, he’s birthday or anything special he just makes me breakfast in bed any day because I love it and I hope (think) he loves it too. It does keep me quite for a long time so I think he likes doing it even more (😂😂😂)
  • Chatting – So the dude and I are very talkative people but I think I overshadow him in most instances but when the boy starts oh good lord it takes me falling asleep to stop him (looool). When boo and I are chatting it’s about simple things about life, he lives for today and I live for today with a foot in a future plan.

This is what I want for Valentine’s Day. If I get anything more for me it will be a bonus but in totality this is all I want.

What do you want for Valentine’s Day?

  • Awww and yes you did make me jealous. Breakfast in bed an cuddles- sounds like a keeper to me. Hope you enjoy Valentines with your boo.

    • Thanks so much Louise and I hope you have an equally amazing Valentine’s Day

  • Aaww I hope you have a lovely Valentines Day – I will be spending it with my children – couldn’t ask for more 🙂 Kaz x

    • Sounds awesome and thanks

  • We are actually going away this weekend, it was a present from my inlaws for Christmas – Monkey is staying with them so it will just be us which will be lovely. Although at 29 weeks pregnant I suspect I will do a fair amount of sleeping in lol. Hopefully the odd afternoon at the pub with a good book and cards and trying to stay off the social media xx

    • Awwww that’s so sweet and hope you have an amazing time

  • great ideas.. and as the cook in the house breakfast in bed is always heaven

  • I don’t celebrate Valentines Day but I do want to treat myself because it is about time that I scheduled me time. I am so drained and it would be nice to relax for once although I know that is not going to happen!

    • It would be nice if you managed to schedule some me time as it’s very important to schedule that time in.

  • I am so looking forward to this years as we will be abroad!

    • That’s awesome, have fun

  • such a cheesy post! lol I won’t tell you what I will be getting up to this valentines as i’m married to your brother! hahahahaha only joking we don’t celebrate it

    • Hahahaha you too nuts sis but I hope you two can have a meal at home with monkey sleeping or something lol

  • We have stopped celebrating as such as it is such an overcomercialised occasion and it can all feel very false with the kinky decor in some shops…etc. We exchange cards and try to have a meal out but not on the day so this would be lovely this year and no more.xx

  • Some great suggestions. I have been with my husband for 11 years so we don’t really do ‘proper’ gifts, I would be happy with all you have said also 🙂

  • haha yes I am definitely up for some cuddling and chatting in bed – honestly just spending some time together out of our busy lives is what we are after for Valentines this year!

    • And I hope you get it as well

  • We don’t do much for valentines normally just watch a dvd and have takeaway.

    • How about you cook together and watch dvd?

  • We don’t celebrate Valentines Day but I like the your idea.

  • I absolutely love this!! Me and my hubby don’t do Valentines Day as a rule, but I love your idea about just doing those simple things, things we would normally do anyway, but maybe just making it extra special.

    The only thing I can’t do myself is the ‘breakfast in bed’… Too many crumbs…!

    Leah xx

    • Hahaha lol crumbs or not it will be cleaned by him after 😂

  • Aw a great wish list! I also think Valentines Day is very commerical but breakfast in bed sounds great to me!

    • Thanks breakfast in bed is always great
